Where the Stars Still Shine
By: Trish Doller
Stolen as a child from her large and loving family, and on the run with her mom for more than ten years, Callie has only the barest idea of what normal life might be like. She's never had a home, never gone to school, and has gotten most of her meals from laundromat vending machines. Her dreams are haunted by memories she’d like to forget completely. But when Callie’s mom is finally arrested for kidnapping her, and Callie’s real dad whisks her back to what would have been her life, in a small town in Florida, Callie must find a way to leave the past behind. She must learn to be part of a family. And she must believe that love--even with someone who seems an improbable choice--is more than just a possibility.
I absolutely loved this book! I couldn't put it down! It's a story of finding yourself and becoming your own person. The main character, Callie, had to go through a lot growing up and then she was ripped away from the only life she'd known since she was little and thrown into a life that was supposed to be hers all along and she has trouble starting it. In this book, there are situations in which are life like that it's easy to put yourself in those shoes. It truly is an amazing read!
